The Hidden Glaciers of Patagonia
Repeats Wednesday @ 12.55am
Fíorscéal brings a new season of top-class international documentaries that continue to throw a sometimes disturbing or controversial light on issues which affect us environmentally, socially, politically and globally. Among the documentaries of the new season are:
The Hidden Glaciers of Patagonia – Repeats Wednesday @ 12.55am
Two glaciologists and a nature photographer take on an important mission to document the hidden glaciers of Patagonia. They will travel on horseback and sleep in mountain shelters as they trek on the path once shared by the pioneers who first discovered this region hundreds of years ago. Sharing their scientific findings on Argentina’s glaciers, Lucas Ruiz and Pierre Pitte demonstrate how innovative experiments have allowed them to become more adept at monitoring glaciers and revealing what the future may hold.
The Reindeer Keepers – Thursday @ 10.30pm
The Reindeer Keepers is an unmissable and heart-warming documentary which gives us an intimate insight to the everyday lives of three young reindeer keepers living in Sápmi. Here family and friends means everything. The Sami people have lived alongside other peoples for several hundreds of years in what are now Sweden, Finland, Norway and Russia. In this documentary, we join Inga Biret Márjá Triumf, Laara Persson and Ber-Joná Labba through hectic summer nights, hard work, family events, parties, Tinder swipes and a football derby.
